“Sometimes we would reach late to school and the teachers would shout at us for arriving late, says Jyoti.
Aged 14 and studying in grade 8th ,Jyoti is the eldest sibling in her family. Her mother is a cook in her school and her father works in a garage She stays in Lambhcha Malla,and studies in Nyanvardhin High School. The distance between her house and her school is about 2 km and it would take about 30 -45 min to cover the distance. Mann Deshi Foundation donated Jyoti a cycle.
“The cycle has helped me cut travelling time by half and this has resulted in increased time for study and play. Previously I would get only 1.5 to 2 hours for myself. But due to this cycle I get almost 3-3.5 hours to do myself study and also engage in extracurricular activities.” She is found of dancing and is a regular participant in various Dance Completions.
Her ambition is to become a doctor. She believes that there are a lack of good doctors n rural areas and wants to make up for the deficit. When asked if she was offered a job in a city’s best hospital, with a high paying salary or in a village ,where the salary and incentives would be drastically low than the cities ,she confidently replies “I want to improve the health condition of the rural people, and how ever high paying job I get in cities or elsewhere my first priority is the rural area where I want to work.”
